Marrenon Les Grains Rose de Merlot

100% Merlot with aromatics of small red fruits and strawberries. A voluptuous palate with a balance between freshness and sweetness.

Fruit for the Les Grains is harvested at night. The Les Grains wines come from select vineyards in the Luberon and Ventoux slopes. While Chardonnay and Merlot are not typical for this region, the high altitude and night harvesting maintains the freshness and fruitiness of these wines, making them ideal.

SOME OF THE LESS FAMOUS REGIONS OF WELL-KNOWN WINE PRODUCING COUNTRIES OFFER EXCEPTIONAL VALUE. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE OF THE LUBERON REGION IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE. TECHNICALLY PART OF THE RHONE VALLEY IT IS LOCATED BETWEEN THE SOUTHERN RHONE AND PROVENCE, SANDWICHED BETWEEN TWO RIVERS AND AT ALTITUDES OF 300 – 500 M. THE ENTIRE LUBERON AOC NESTLES WITHIN THE HEART OF THE LUBERON REGIONAL NATURE PARK. ALL THIS CONTRIBUTES TO THE SWEET FRUIT RIPENED BY THE MEDITERRANEAN SUN, WELL BALANCED BY THE ACIDITY THAT COMES FROM THE TEMPERATURE SWINGS CREATED BY THIS ALTITUDE.

VENTOUX WINES BENEFIT FROM AN UNSPOILT NATURAL ENVIRONMENT OF EXCEPTIONAL BIODIVERSITY. LISTED AS A BIOSPHERE RESERVE BY UNESCO IN 1990, THE MONT VENTOUX SITE IS THE PRIVILEGED SETTING FOR VINEYARDS WORKED WITH RESPECT FOR THE REGION’S NATURAL ENVIRONMENT AND FOR ITS HISTORIC AND CULTURAL HERITAGE. INSPIRED BY THIS PROFUSION, VENTOUX RED WINES ARE SMOOTH AND RICH IN FLAVOURS, RANGING FROM RED-BERRY FRUITS AND SPICES TO LEATHER, LIQUORICE AND TRUFFLE.
THE LUBERON IS ONE OF THE MOST SOUTHERLY WINE-GROWING AREAS OF THE RHONE VALLEY. EMBLEMATIC OF PROVENCE, THE REGION IS ESPECIALLY RICH IN ARCHITECTURAL TREASURES: CATHEDRALS, CASTLES, HILLTOP VILLAGES AND RENAISSANCE BUILDINGS. VINES HAVE FLOURISHED HERE SINCE ANTIQUITY, TAKING POSSESSION OF A NATURAL ENVIRONMENT PRESERVED WITHIN THE REGIONAL NATURE RESERVE (PARC NATUREL RÉGIONAL). THE WINES BENEFIT FROM THE WARMTH OF THE MEDITERRANEAN CLIMATE, BUT ALSO HAVE A NICE FRESH FINISH. THE FACT THAT THE VINEYARDS LIE AT ALTITUDES OF BETWEEN 200 AND 450 METRES MAKES FOR A WIDE TEMPERATURE RANGE THROUGHOUT THE DAY, WHICH IMPARTS FRESHNESS TO THE WINES. THE REGION ALSO PRODUCES SOME DELIGHTFULLY ELEGANT WHITE WINES, TO WHICH THE VERMENTINO GRAPE CONTRIBUTES ITS SPECIAL CITRUS FLAVOURS.
